BFF: The Happy Prince

Biography Drama


 

Oscar Wilde, shunned by society after his jail term, lives out his last days in Europe penniless with contact from only a few friends.

This is the imagined story of Wilde during his final days, and it tells a lot of the story of the man beyond the wit and works he is remembered for. Flashbacks and memories are used to piece together the past and explain his reduced circumstances. Strong emotions draw us into the world of a century ago to re-live the outrage of his incarceration and the effect it had on him. Once upon a time.
